Play pop bass guitar

It's all about keeping it simple and serving the song

BASS EXPO 2014: Bass in pop music draws from a huge amount of genres and techniques, but one aspect of pop that tends to remain consistent is the bass as the link between rhythm and melody.

Throughout this video series, tutor Matt Mead is playing a Cort Artisan B4 20th bass guitar through a Hartke Kickback 15 combo amp.

The B4 bass features Bartolini MK-1 Pickups and MK-1 EQ, complimenting the natural tone of the mahogany or swamp ash body. And thanks to Hipshot Lic. Tuners, tuning accuracy and stability is exactly what you'll get on the stylish, versatile, and affordable B4 bass.

Hartke's Kickback 15 combo amp houses the revolutionary Two-Way (upright and tilt back) cabinet design, plus a custom Hartke 15-inch aluminum cone driver, the unique Shape control for accurate tone shaping, a three-band EQ, passive/active input jack, and balanced XLR Out.

An experienced bassist and teacher, Mead is currently playing bass guitar with fast-rising UK rockers Empire.
